You can use the ps command to see what is running. To check for Java apps, use:

ps -ef | grep java

Alternately, you could use the jps app that comes with the JDK - it lists the Java processes running and gives the main class name.

AS far as a full script goes, you are on your own,: NotACodeMill

I would be careful when you "grep" for just for java. It may return other processes that use java.

Also when you execute the command 'grep java'. The actual command 'grep java' will show up in the process status queue.

One suggestion is to grep for the script that will execute the java program. This will only work if the script blocks while the java program program is running.

For example:
java_program_script.ksh:




This is just one example.
